these are the things i do at 4 am

Pearl has grown so much as a character

Season 1: Garnet wait! I’m sure Steven didn’t understand what he was doing!

Season 4: Steven, do you know what you’re doing?

Despite still being obviously worried, she is standing back and allowing Steven to get in that weird glowy elevator thing. She’s gone from having absolutely no faith in him to letting him make his own decisions and be a leader. I am so proud of her!

So a thing happened...

I actually hit 700 followers last night and I wondered if I should do a bit of a celebration what with me still having my writing challenge for 500 going and just finishing the celebration days for 600 but I love you guys so much for following me sooooo send me your gifs and I will drabble.  I AM gonna limit my tumblr wife to just 4 gifs (otherwise I will be writing for months because she WILL spam me and I love her for that.) but if you gif it I will write xxx

Reducing Struggling with ADHD to “Perfectionism”

When I say I have trouble writing I mean ADHD and executive dysfunction make it  damn near impossible to

1) have the energy and motivation to engage in such an involved project

2) organize my thoughts and ideas in such an formal/specific way

3) sustain my effort through the hours needed to get a few pages written down

4) finish anything in a timely manner - slow processing means even when I am miraculously focused and writing it takes FOREVER to do it (I have additional processing problems so this may be a more personal one)

But when I say I have trouble getting words on the page people will, without fail, say it’s “perfectionism” and I’m tired of hearing that already. The thing is NT’s don’t understand the struggles listed above and they don’t want to acknowledge writing can be much more strenuous for other people.

Perfectionism can be overcome, you can just put things down and edit later. It may not be you’re first choice, but that’s all it is - a choice, a matter of desire. What people with ADHD and executive dysfunction face isn’t so simple and by misunderstanding it in this way they assume we have the ability to write like them and are deliberately holding back. They erase/ignore the fact it is part of a disability.

(I’m not saying that anxiety over writing isn’t it’s own problem or that it isn’t a valid reason to have a block but that it is an entirely separate entity and the rhetoric “you could do this if you weren’t so worried about it being perfect” is constantly shoved down our throats and it is dismissive in the manner NT’s do it. Plus if we internalize it then it can lead to anxiety that wasn’t there before.)

Workout Log 4-25-17

I do have a number of things working in my favor this morning. First of all, I slept quite normally. Started tossing a bit around 4 AM, but that’s just because I had passed out so early and was getting close to “done” around then. Let myself continue napping, naturally. Also, I got my cardio done this morning. I think I actually like this setup. I did abs yesterday, which isn’t my favorite. And, I got my cardio done, which isn’t always the easiest to get myself motivated for. So, we’re 2 workouts into the week and I only have my favorite ones left. I like those prospects! 

So, no major changes. 5.0 mph is still my comfortable pace and I’m going up to 7.0 mph intervals. One thing to note is I had fewer walking cycles this morning so endurance is getting back up there. OH! I got my half marathon map in the mail. It’s the same route as last year, but it’s still nice that I’m getting mail from someone other than my utilities. 

Playlist Picks: Listened to George Clinton’s “Atomic Dog” this morning. I’m a pretty recent fan, but I saw him perform downtown in the fall and I fell in love. I’ve always been a huge fan of funk, but sometimes we end up missing out on great acts for whatever reason. Also really enjoyed hearing Jimi Hendrix’s “Freedom” today. 

The bridge is the worst part.

anonymous asked:

um hi no offense but I just woke up in a cold sweat realizing that the regent doesn't have a name and I don't know what to do with my life

he does actually have a name most people don’t realize this but he does it’s “Please Punch Me In The Fucking Face”. 

On a serious note though, I do think about this from time to time too. I wonder why Pacat didn’t name The Regent, but a part of me think she did it to further dehumanize him (??? if that makes sense?? i’m typing this out at like 3 am so there’s a chance this is all intelligible garbage) like to make him seem even more cold and unapproachable as a character. 

There was a post going around a while back about Laurent being named after/having a similar name to The Regent which I had mixed feelings about, but overall I thought was interesting?? Pacat is very interesting when it comes to names because (from what I understand, which isn’t a lot) because sometimes her characters have names that represent them very well (see: Erasmus) and other times they don’t appear to at all?? of course I could just not be looking in the right place  

Though, personally speaking, I’ve been mentally calling him Loghain in my head. Partly bc it starts with an L (since Auguste and Aleron both start with As?? so maybe The Regent’s name would also start with an L to parallel Laurent’s name in a twisted way) and partly bc I’m a huge dragon age nerd (in Origins Loghain betrays The King, his son in law, and leaves him to die in battle. After which declaring the group of people he also betrayed– the grey wardens– as traitors as well as lying to his daughter about the truth of what happened and proceeds to declare himself Regent)

Looking for Love -

Okay, I won’t try to make this too long, but I can’t do it in three lines. Long term relationships, I’ve found, take time to build. Courting is easy. I am open to either. I would like to add, though, that I’ve reached a point in my life where the idea of settling down into a long term, committed thing appeals to me. If I’ve caught your interest, just tell me upfront what you seek and we’ll build the
foundation differently.

My history. My name is Alistandra, but I strongly prefer to be called Ali. I was engaged, years ago, to a dedicated soldier who gave her life to the Alliance. Since then, I’ve dipped my toe into the pool of romance, but nothing has quite stuck. I was born in Stormwind, and raised there, in a heavily military influenced environment. Both my mother and father were very successful in the Alliance military until my mother passed last year, and my father retired shortly after. As such, I chose to follow in their footsteps. I was elated when the Light chose me to be it’s hand and I take my duty as a paladin and a knight very seriously. I would like to find someone that shares a similar history, but I am open to those who have chosen other paths.

I have no children, but I would like them in the future. If you have them, please don’t allow that to stop you from reaching out to me.  I would like to find someone who is financially stable, relatively easy on the eyes - looks aren’t everything -, someone to make me laugh,
can read between the lines.

If you’ve found that you connected with anything stated above, you can often find me in Cathedral Square. I look forward to meeting you.

-Ali

OMG! YES! Tell me all about it xD. Btw you've only done more outfits for Billy or also for the rest of the YA?

I’m a loser who has nothing better to do than draw in class instead of actually listening. I’m also a loser who’s favorite thing to draw are costumes. Medieval. Fantasy. Sci-Fi. Superheroes. I have sketchbooks upon sketchbooks of concepts and I may or may not have made a ton for not just YA but also with the Teen Titans, the XMen, The Fantastic 4, and the Batfam.

I’ve never gotten to doing them digitally tho’ but I am actually working on one at the moment. ouo this has been in the works for maybe about two weeks ??? because of uni. It’ll get finished … eventually.

Study Log: Day 82(?)

We are 18 days out from my CBSE re-take, folks. This week is my last official week of uninterrupted study time before I begin my family medicine rotation, where I’ll be juggling working from 7-4 while still trying to do 2 blocks a day! Yay!!!

My UWorld scores have improved vastly. It’s amazing to think about the 45s and 50s I was getting two months ago and see the 65s, 70s, and 77s I’m getting now. Maybe I can do this step 1 thing after all.

In other news, I have been asked to sing the alma mater at commencement again this year! I am super excited to be able to perform at graduation and also see my senior partner and sixth years friends graduate.

Oh, and remember my adorable four-legged friend that I adopted about a month and a half ago?

That is not one, not two, but SIX band-aids covering bite and scratch marks from an attack from Willie tonight. This is not the first time he has attacked me, but this is definitely the worst.

I’ve been having issues with cat aggression with Willie for the last 6 weeks and have contacted the behaviorists at the shelter I adopted him from to help resolve the issue. After a week of a calming collar, a calming diffuser, and a few more cat toys, it appears from my wounds tonight that they are not helping. But hey, at least I can say that Willie’s helping teach me about pasturella and bartonella infections?

(Seriously though SOS send halp I think my cat is trying to kill me)

Also, it’s wedding week for a dear friend and sorority sister, so I guess I’ll be sporting some new arm accessories when I walk down the aisle as a bridesmaid.

I hope y’all are having a great April and enjoying the spring weather! (If you get spring weather, that is.) Good luck to everyone preparing for end of the semester exams/boards, we can do this!

Ok guys, major nerd-out post here regarding Shiro's arm!

As a student in their 4th year of undergrad for a degree in prosthetics, I’m absolutely SMITTEN with Shiro’s bionic arm (and the guy it’s attached to, obviously). But as much as I adore all the art and fics, there are a few things that are driving me nuts that I’d like to share in a few points here, just for reference if anyone wants it. I’ve seen very few fanworks with a proper presentation of artificial limbs, so here goes! 

 #1. Under NO circumstances does anyone sleep with their prosthetic limb on. 

You read that right: under NO circumstances! This also goes for taking a shower. It might look sexy until you get shocked with however many volts he’s got in that thing, But even if it’s waterproof, what is the purpose?? of having it in the shower? when your supposed to be washing the residual limb as well??

“But Wait!” I hear someone say. “Isn’t it implied that Shiro’s arm is permanently attached somehow, and he can’t or doesn’t know how to take it off?”

To answer your question, yes, it is implied. And I’m here to tell you how that is ABSOLUTELY NOT POSSIBLE.

Cheryl loved Jason. What was she meant to do at his funeral, not cry? And yeah Jason was on the football team but Cheryl was at every game too doing as much to help the Bull Dogs win as he did. Also she has a 4.0 grade point average. If there’s one thing I’ve learned being in Cheryl’s class it’s don’t underestimate her. And don’t bet against her.

Did I avoid my studying responsibilities just to draw them– yes; am I ashamed of myself–honestly yes

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCauInQerZifpmJdhg3HzYFQ

He has this video, saying “GLITCHTALE EPISODE 4 SPOILERS”

HIS DESCRIPTION:

He has already uploaded so proudly to his channel. 1 and 5


I commented on it, he ignored me and uploaded even more.

He literally has recorded the entire battle I’ve been animating these past 3 weeks and a half.

And this ass uploads it with a “I hope you enjoy!”

Oh! but cami! you’re so rude to that kid! You can’t send your fans to hate on him! telling him rude things is bad!

HOW ABOUT SCREW YOU

What about me? I’m the one who took 6 years of her life to get to where I am

I AM the one who stays awake until 4 AM being sick to finish a single scene of this animation

I AM the one who works her ass off every single damn day to work on this, because I LOVE to do it. Because I LOVE to create.

I AM the one being affected here.

IF YOU want to have empathy for jerks like these. Go ahead. Because I won’t. And I’m in ALL my rights to don’t have it. Because THIS is the kind of IDIOT that has been ruining my will to draw and create the past 2 weeks.

It is my life at risk, and asses like these take it as a joke.

Would you like it if someone took everything you care about and stomp it on the ground? No? Because I don’t. 

And is not about “being rude” or “going too far” because I’ve been getting STOMPED ON, BY EVERYONE this week. And I’m DONE playing the nice guy in the situation.

It is MY WORK and I will NOT allow some ass to ruin it for me. I’ll use any means necessary to take all the videos he has uploaded down. And I’ll make sure that whatever other video he has about me, will never see the platform until I finish this damn episode. And it’s featured for the first time in my channel. 

And if you’re here to tell me “oh cami calm down! ignore it! dont be so rude!” save some time from your life and don’t even BOTHER to write. Because I’m done going that route.
